Pat* Four JUNIORS Junior Class T11RII years have sped on their way, and what they have been, — marked by attainments not only in scholastic and athletic lines, but in campus activities as well. In striving to accomplish cur many freshman ambitions, we have given little thought to any- thing but carrying on the traditions and high ideals of Stout. If we were to recall the past a bit — well — space doesn't permit us that pleasure. One year remains during which we may add our contributions to the ever growing spirit of Stout. With the "will to do" wc promise that our contribution will not be a small one. We may look upon the class of '51 with envy, but deep down in our hearts we are eagerly awaiting the time when we shall hold that coveted position from which they are retiring.

Arnold K: Eau Cltire, "Arm," Tumblers VC'oodworken FALL ATHLETICS EAR1 BUR 151 IK, I Head Coach at ion The Coaches FABIAN SC HRANK I Football— 1930 FOOTBALL, in 1930, started with a squad of fifty-two men reporting. After a few strenuous weeks of practice, the squad was cut to thirty-three. Twenty-two men and two m inagers received letters, with seven men re- ing numerals. The season was net successful from the standpoint of wins and losses, but a good sixty minutes of football was guaranteed every Saturday. The team developed from green, raw material into a fighting squad well \ - in fundamentals. The bright spot of football is that eighteen of the lettermen will report next fall; the teams may also draw material from a few men who have transferred from other schools and from the incoming freshmen. \ season is looked for next year. Last fall, after a week's practice, the team went to Winona to play the Teachers, but the boys showed their inexperience. The following Saturday Macalester completely outplayed our team the first half — a fighting Stout team took the field the second half and played a great defensive game. Then came Stevens Point, our first conference game — a close game with hard breaks. After a misunderstanding had brought the «oldiers to Mcnomonie and had sent our team to Minneapolis, the two teams played at Fort Sncliing, in the dark, without the aid of lights. River Falls offered a fine game on a terrible day — breaks with the wind, a superior, experienced team; the Falls won in the last quarter. At Eau Claire our team did its best work — outgained and outfought Eau Claire but could not score. The final game against La Crosse was a thriller — a good defensive game — with mental lapses darkening the day for Stout. We hope the experience gained this year will benefit our team next year. Spitznaglc was elected backfield captain; Stori was elected line captain. Page S JOHX E. RUDE John more than fulfilled our expectations as a plucky wingman. The burden of captain fell upon his shoulders; he carried his responsibility well. When a forward pass appeared on the horizon. John had glue on his hands and Mercury's sandals on his feet. He leaves us this year. We lose the best when we lose him. JULIUS X. NELSON Sue possessed the ability of taking advantage of what holes he could find, and of making his own when there were none to be found. He has two more years of com- petition; we expect much of him. GEORGE BIWER Butch, although short-changed by nature, po^ the fight which made him the fly- wheel in the Blue an J White engine. He was a good blocker and a hard tackier. He is expected to bolster the line again nevr year. HENRY A. HARMON Harmon's sole purpose on the field was to play foot- ball. His playing was marked by intense spirit and fight as well as by unusual ability. His defensive work at fullback was always deserving of praise; he was a hard man to keep out of the play. LEROY E. MYRELL The experience which Myrell gained on this year's squad will be of value to him in his next two years of competition. When called upon to play, he proved steady and dependable. Pagt Tucnty HAROLD MATSON Mat son was one of the most consistent ground gainers in the Blue and White train. His running and stamina won him recognition as one of the mainstays of the backfield. GERALD E. DECKER Decker, a yearling, was one of the hardest tacklcrs on the team and rarely failed to get what he was after. He is fast and follows interference well. He blocks with the same gusto with which he cackles. DAVID D. BITTER Bitters held up the tackle position on the other side of Cronk. His playing showed real style when time and again he broke through the enemy's line to smear backfield men for losses. ANSEL L. ANDERSON Ans developed into a speedy end. His rangy build and speed increased the efficiency of the aerial attack. He has two years in which to secure more honors. GLENN JOHNSON "Tufty" gave .1 good account of himself at every turn. He was a dependable lineman, performing best on the defensive. He did much toward the team's pro- duction. T -.cent y one DAVID STOR1 Playing a wing for the first time, Dave displayed a fine brand of football. His ability to spill interference and his fleet ncss of foot were deserving of special notice. His punting had both longitude and placement. He will captain the line next year. WILLIAM I. MICHEELS Overcoming the handicap of size. Bud gained more than a few yards for our side. His tackling in the open and his ability to squirm through small holes were features of his play. He matched brains against beet and won. Nothing need be said about his control of the skin when aerial attacks were the order of the day. JOE J. SPITZNAGLE It was Spitz's ability to shake off opposing tacklers which enabled him to get away with substantial gains in hard conflicts. He will captain the team next year. Show us the same, Spitz. JOHN P. HARMON Jack was an ideal man for cither guard or tackle position. He played a steady, progressive game that showed football genius in the rough. We'll watch him more closely next year. ANTHONY KUKAR Kukar was \ newcomer to the squad who developed into a real center. His services will be missed next tall. ARTHUR I.. DEHLINGER Art started the season at tackle but was later shifted to end. One of the scrappiest players on the team, his specialty was Cackling pun; receivers just as they caught the ball. He will be back next year. JEFFERSON R. CRONK Jeff could always be depended upon to hold up his end on the defensive, and tear it down on the offensive. Stonewall Jackson had nothing on Cronk. There is a tackle berth waiting for him next year. LEWIS G. PA] MI R As a guard, Palmer deserves much credit. His Steady, progressive type of play was a great asset CO the team. His ability to run interference aided the team's offense. He has one more year of competition. THEODORE V. BIELECKT That practice makes perfect was proven bv Bielecki's handling of the pivot position. When he lent his sup- port to the line, that particular section had about as much give as a concrete wall. Well done. liielecki. JOSEPH A. NEUDECK1 R Joe was an important cog in the Blue and W scoring machine. His signal was the one to call when the opponent's goal line was within scoring distance- Joe's ability to leave the immediate vicinity at will marked him as one of the speediest halves in the con- ference.

H Thirty-one The Stoutonia THE year 1930-31 marked one of the most prosperous and successful years of existence for The Stoutonia. Student enthusiasm and student labor have carried it along through the last nine months in fine shape, and it emerged a worthy member of the veteran college newspaper group. Primarily, The Stoutonia is the official voice of the school. Much space has neces- sarily been devoted to setting before the reading public the accomplishments and aims of the institution. On the other hand, the columns have always been thrown open to Student opinion, and the staff has made a special effort to secure each week the interest- ing items pertaining to student activities and desires. Various changes in staff personnel have been made throughout the year in order tli.it the best of the student writing talent should serve the Stoutonia readers. That this secured results has been evident in the rising standard of the paper. Putting management of the paper on a different basis at the beginning of the fall term has been in no little measure responsible for the success of the paper. As editor-in-chief, Miss 1 lenricttc Quilling served in conjunction with the managing editor, Mr. George Guy. Both editors had had experience which gave them a highly workable background for their duties. An editorial board was created composed of four associate editors who met weekly with the editor-in-chief and the managing editor to plan the paper for the coming week. In this way. the old element of chance and neglected assignments was eliminated. In addition, the paper took on a workmanlike and mechanically balanced appearance comparable to that of a metropolitan daily. The Stoutonia occupies the unique position of being one of the very few college papers in the United States both written and published by the students. The entire production, from the roughly drafted story, through the journey of linotyping, proof reading, headline writing, mechanical composition, and final printing, is the work of students. The Stoutonia in the past year has served five hundred students, a large number of local subscribers, and hundreds of alumni scattered throughout the United States and five foreign countries.

OFFICERS Henry Harmon President Secretary ; J Treasurer Page Forty-out ^r Winter St a mi by my suit unci turn, J pray, On the lake below thy gentle eye%; The clouds bang over it, heavy and gray, And dark and silent the water lies; And out of the frozen mist the snow In wavering flakes begins to flow; Flake after flake They sink in the dark and silent lake. Yet look again, for the Houdi d'n ulc; A gleam of blue on the water lies; And far away on the dark hillside, A sunbeam falls from the opening skies; Rut the hurrying host that flew between The cloud and the water no more is seen; Flake after flake, At rest in the dark and silent lake. — William Cullen Bryant Page Forty-two A great and wise president h one who happens to be in office whew everyone is making money. 28.

It has been the aim of the Sophomore Class to do its part well. Among the duties of the Sophomore Class arc the instruction and general care of thj Freshmen. \\"c feel that we have been not only strong and competent teachers but that we have also set an example which they may well follow. We have contributed our share to the various activities of Stout, to the athletic, musical, literary, dramatic, and art organizations. The friendships and contacts that we have made and arc making in college are adding richness and pleasure to our lives. In this, our second year at Stout. w v > have strengthened old friendships and made new. Both our work and our play have brought us together in friendly groups.

But his captain's hand on his shoulder smote — "Play up! play up! and play the game!"

This they all with a joyful mind Bear through life like a torch in flame, And, falling, fling to the host behind — "Play up! play up! and play the game!" — Henry Newbolt Page I WINTER SPORTS Basketball— 1930-31 BASKETBALL started with a large number of boys reporting, several of whom were members of the squad which finished so well last year. A total of fifteen games was played. Stout winning ten and losing five. In the conference, five were won, three lost; a total of 410 to the opponents' 331 was made, or 27.3 points on offense and 22.1 points on defense. A well-rounded squad of twelve men carried the load of the season. A non-conference game with Hansen Furniture proved a little exciting for the first game. A visit to Carleton on its floor gave the team plenty of experience. A large floor and a seasoned team proved too much for the Blue Devils. The Menomonie Red Birds gave the shooters a chance to get their eye, and a \isit to Winona Teachers helped in our experience and also in the win column. The game before the holidays was with St. Mary's at Winona, when inability to make baskets beat us in a close game. Our first conference game opened the first week after the Christmas holidays with La Crosse at La Crosse. A bad first half with our team holding the champions to one basket; the second half was the outstanding performance. Score 24-22. Stevens Point came to Stout next and in a good exhibition was beaten 31-18. Eau Claire, with the poorest team in years, visited and was beaten 42-2 5. St. Mary's, a much improved team, proved an exciting and battling team in a 25-20 win for Stout. In our journey to River Falls, a surprise which defeated and completely stopped our offense awaited us. The result was a 30-19 defeat. La Crosse came next and was an almost exact duplicate of the first game, La Crosse making two baskets in the second half. The score at the half was Stout 6 — La Crosse I7. The score at the end of the game, Stout 21 — La Crosse 25. A remarkable second half recovery and excellent work by the reserves raised the score. Our journey to Eau Claire ended in exactly the same score as that of the previous game, 42-25. River balls came here and our boys were "hot" and "on" both in floor- work and in basketball shooting. A wonderful game was played to break the jinx which has so long dominated Stout teams and the final was Stout 33 — River Falls I7. Our journey to Stevens Point proved to be too long and tiresome; in a slow, listless game we emerged victorious, 23-20. The season ended, but a challenge and a plea for charity brought the suits out of the mothballs, and Elmwood. winner of the Professional Championship of this district, was engaged, with the result that charity was helped somewhat and Stout established the superiority of the amateur over the professional by a 31-18 score. The season was very successful, being the first one above 500'; in a number of seasons; not only that, all but two of the twelve lettcrmen return next fall to continue on our championship march which was started this year, ending with wins over Eau Claire, Stevens Point, and Elmwood. One of our men made the all conference team. Stori. Buros and "Kcrmie" Anderson made the second team, and Spitznagle was given honorable mention. Wc congratulate you on your season and look forward to a big year with a great team next year with everyone reporting. Page Fifty-four LEON HAASE Ott, the captain of this year's team, displayed unusual form. His spirit and fight kept the morale of the team on a razor edge. His ability to play either forward or guard positions made him a valuable assei to the team. He has one more year of competition. EDWIN A. IWHL Eddie's work in the pre-season games won him a for- ward berth. Although he was handicapped by size, his fight and ball handling ability made him a valuable player. His ability on defense proved a hoodoo to the opponent, especially in the River Falls game here. This fleet for- ward has two more years of competition. CARL H. HOI KM MANX Carl aided the team's defense. His work in the La game lineup proved him a stellar guard. Carl will be with us again next year. KERMIT E. ANDERSON Kenny, the boy from Ashland, was a most valuable center. His ability to get the ball off the backboard, combined with his clever shooting, many times saved the day for Stout. That Kermy was very seldom out- jumped at center greatly aided the Blue Devils' offense. AXEL JOHNSON Doc proved to be a capable ball handler and con- sistently did his bit toward the fine showing the team made this year. He always contributed to the score book when called into the play. His services will be missed next year. FRED H. JOHNSON Fritz, playing his usually consistent style of ball, was one of the main cogs in the Trainers' machine. His work in the La Crosse game here showed that he could always be depended upon. His best work was performed on the defense. He will be back with us again next year. DAVID STORI Dave, playing his first year, proved to be one of the most clever as well as one of the fastest men in the con- ference, winning for himself the position of all-con- ference guard. Because of his ability to dribble, he was the key man on offense. Much is expected of Dave next year. JOE J. SP1TZNAGLE Spitz had a combination of speed and floorwork that u.is hard to beat. His unerring eye for the loop greatly aided the team's victory at Stevens Point. Great things are expected of him next year. Pat* Fiftyii.r HERMAN* R. BUROS Lovey, co-partner of Dave, played consistent ball. He could always be depended upon. He was equally pro- ficient on both offensive and defensive. His best work was performed in the River Falls game. He will be back to aid the Blue Devils next year. GUST AVE E. CARLSON "Ah", the diminutive forward, played exceptional bail this year. He was fast and always in the play. He will be back to aid the team next year. STEVE A. CVENGROS Stikc, playing his third season of basketball for Stout, displayed unusual form on both the offense and defense. His work at center and forward was of a stellar type, particularly in the forward position. WSHL L. ANDERSON Ans, although not participating in much competition, proved that he will be a valuable man in the next two years. His rangy build makes him a good man for the pivot position. i'age / V B m ■ . 1 1 ■ I i -^ 1 " i P^J 1 F.%Um hr~] I r r * / * r 1 K 1/ <•' ft - Squad ■ B Squad Basket Ball Team COACH SCHRANK'S basket ball B team came through this year in great style. winning all of their games. Several men have showed promise and will no doubt make a strong bid for the varsity positions next year. Early in the season the different men who came out for the team were divided into two squads, one the varsity, the other the B squad. Several men from last year reported, together with the new men, to make up a very formidable aggregation and to carry the colors of the Stout B squad to a 100 percent year. The B squad was given the different team plays so that they might work them against the varsity. This practice certainly helped both squads to know more about the playing of the different plays of the conference teams. In working under these plays and as a unit, the B squad gained much valuable experience, which will make the men good material for the wrsuy next year. Hylland. McNaughton, and Noble handled the forward positions in a formidable style, while Picrson, Decker, and Johnson handled the guard positions, with Steves playing center. Williams could be worked as center or as forward. Snyder also played fine ball. With many men of good caliber going to th« varsity, much may be expected of the latter team next year. I'agf I Swimming T HE swimming tank, remodeled during the past year at great expense, is now one of the best pools in the state. Interest in water sports has grown; the pool is in use during many hours of each day, being used for gymnasium classes, recreation periods. Red Cross life saving instruction, and competitive swimming events. In fact, the present interest in swimming is making it one of the college's most popular sports. • ■ • Home Towners Cafeteria. rrnest A l/k/f/er-Mgr frosh Home Towners INTRAMURAL Curtis House 5P0RT5 lis: . . Page WOMEN'S ATHLETICS Women's Athletic Association DURING the past year, the women of the college have shown great interest in athletics. Through the Women's Athletic Association, through active participation in athletics and club work, they have been able to win the letter "S". Frances Incnfeldt, Henriette Quilling, Marietta DcCramer, Georgia Aber, and Josephine Edinger were awarded the letter last year. During the present year, Clarysse Ness, Alice Ostrum, Mildred Haggard, and Lois Lamon won the "S". The women who received the letter last year entered the competition for the miniature loving cups, which are the highest awards for excellence in women's athletics at Stout. The winners were Georgia Aber, Josephine Edinger, and Marietta DeCramer. ii®' rtyt:to Flashball AFTER many close contests between classes, the Seniors won the flashball title for the year 1931. The first game was between the Frosh and the Sophomores, the score being a 5 ill tie. The Seniors defeated the Freshman girls by the close score, 6-7. Again the Freshmen played the large score of 11-3. Then the Seniors defeated the Juniors 4-5, thus giving the Seniors the undisputed title for flashball. FRESHMAN TEAM M. BUBF.CK. Captain V.

Page Eighty-eight FRESHMEN The Freshman Class THE class of 1934 aspires to be the greatest class ever to have attended The Stout Institute, wishing to claim that distinction by virtue not only of numbers but of achievements. That is a lofty aim in any college where the competition is as keen as it is at Stout. We make no vain boast that wc have really realized that hope; we do claim that our record is promising. Though at first considered merely a surging mob, wc had the strength and the organization necessary to vanquish the so-called mighty Sophomores. Wc have becoma an active group in the college with a good representation in every extra-curricular activity. We have made good records not only in outside activities but in the class room as well. With our present high standards, we should pass through our remaining years at Stout with colors flying.

New equipment and a fairly large schedule, including River Falls, Eau Claire, and St. Thomas, proved to be incentive, and the competition was good. The material was green, and of the rawest kind, but the spirit was excellent. ral inter-team games were played for experience; others were played with the Mcnomonic Blue Caps. The games were verj well attended by large groups. There is good promise for the future of baseball in Stout's athletic program. I'nce ,V( Track ABOUT cwenty-eight men reported for track. They worked whole-heartedly in preparation for meets with Eau Claire, Oshkosh, and Superior. After intensive pre- liminary work, the team was taken outside where the men worked for the development of form and endurance. The season was successful and great interest was shown.

The Eichelberger Scholarships were awarded to two students fn m the Junior class and to two from the Sophomoie class, on the basis of scholarship, personality, future possibilities, social attitude, and value to the school. Ardella Anderson and Ernest Christensen, Juniors, and Ethel Anderson and Robert Reick, Sophomores, each received the award of enc hundred dollars. The custom initiated in 1928 of giving honors to the two Freshmen who ranked highest in scholarship was again observed. The students honored were Belinda Hcn- drickson and C -'Void Nauta.

FOREWORD T HE 1931 Tower Staff has tried to make this book an innovation in annuals. En- deavoring to compile a record of the activities of the year in the order of their hap- pening, we have made our theme the three sea- sons of Fall, Winter, and Spring. We have devoted an entire section of the 1931 Tower to the Seniors. In accordance with our theme, this section comes at the end of their school life and at the "commencement" of their professional life. We hope that this book may be a chronicle of pleasant memories.

Simultaneously provision was made for a State Board of Trustees which was identical in personnel with the State Board of Vocational Educa tion. Mr. II. E. Miles was the first President of the Board serving from 1911 to 1 9 1 7. In 191 7 Mr. E. W. Schultz. President of the Xorthficld Company of Sheboygan, succeeded to the presidency and has been in continuous service as president ever since that date. .\nd Mr. Schultz has been a member of the Board of Trustees since its creation in 1911. The Board of Trustees consists of eleven members, nine of whom are appointed by the Governor. Two members of the board are nominated in the act which created the board and serve as ex- ofticio members. They are Mr. John Callahan, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Mr. Voyta Wr.ibet/. of the State Indus- trial Commission. Of the nine members of the board, three of them, as provided in the law. represent employers of labor, three .ir. chosen from the employee group, and three represent agriculture. Mr. George P. Hambrccht. Director o? Vocational Education for the State of Wisconsin, is Secretary of the Board of Trustees. The Board, unless otherwise specially convened, holds quarterly meetings for the transaction of its business on the fourth Tuesday of July. October, January, and April. The first three of these meetings are held in Milwaukee or Madison. The April meeting is usually held in Menomonie. Therefore, on this, the twentieth anniversary of the creation of the Board of Trustees, and likewise, the twentieth anniversai the creation of The Stout Institute as a state institution, we, the of 1932, dedicate this 1951 copy of the TOWER to the officers and members of the Beard of Trustees in recognition of the two decades of sen ice that these friends have unselfishly given to The Stout Institute. 11 Alma Mater On the [yanks of Lake Meuomin Stands our Alma Mater true With tower high and brilliant "S"; For her we'll dare and do.

NELSON President IV The Dignity of Teaching TEACHING as a profession is each year becoming more highly respected. Year by year it is becoming less a vocation in which is gained the preparation and the experience for a more lucrative and a more permanent business. Young people now pretty generally expect to continue in the educational field when they have once entered it. This favorable condition is due somewhat to the fact that the intelligent and directing forces in the molding of public sentiment demand preparation for teaching before one may begin to teach. It is due somewhat to the fact that teachers are better paid than formerly. It is due in a small way to a most important factor which almost within a decade has become a teaching incentive. Provision is now made for the comfortable retirement of teachers when the duties of effective leadership are ended. It is due in some measure to the tact that teachers are no longer a class unto them- selves. They are as essentially like and as much a part of the com- munity as arc the members of other professions. One no longer apologizes for his part in the educational work of the state. The specialist is now recognized in education just as he is recognized in medicine, law, and engineering. Stout graduates arc and should be as definitely outstanding in their field as the specialists in any other profession. For this reason. Stout students arc fortunate in their selection of a new and distinct field of education. Stout students, however, must consistently continue research studies, studies in the science and literature of education and in in- dustry, because the field of education which they have chosen is not stabilized. Educational procedures arc no more established here than are the practices in the industrial operations nor in the dis- tribution of products, nor yet in the efficiency of machines. We, more than any other group of teachers, must be influenced by social and industrial developments. Constant study lies at the foundation of success and progress. CLYDE A.

With its ap- proach we reali/e more and more that it is but a step toward the attainment of a fuller life. What wc have gained through our contact with teachers and students at Stout has to a great measure depended upon what wc have given. I low we continue to grow will depend upon how we serve, for as wc enter the teaching field we dedi- cate ourselves to Service. Our influence in shaping the life and character of youth will increase .i- the years go by. and our responsibility toward them is indeed great. As wc bid our farewell to our Alma Mater, let us take with us the fondest memories of our college days, and pledge our- selves to support the aims and principles for which our college stands, "for high ideals, for high attainment and ever higher attainment in mental growth through the acquisition and use of worthwhile knowledge, in skill of hand, in teaching ability, in sense of personal responsibility, in respect for the rights of others, in will and power to render worthy service." — /. \\".

NELSON Class of 1931 WITH graduation goes freedom of a sort. You no longer are obliged to do set tasks at set times. You are not bound to co-ordinate your activities with those of the group. Certain restrictions imposed upon you for the good of the community in which you have been living will affect you now only as you choose to respect them. Without serious reflection, one might for a moment fed that there has come a release from responsibility. Such freedom, however, is never possible. With you, along the road that you will travel, in this particular decade of '30'$, your responsibility will be greater than it has been for many other people covering a long period of years. You arc living in a critical period — a period when civilization in its social, busi- ness, and religious standards is unsettled and uncertain. The race is in no sense sure of itself. Many educational agencies for profit are adding to the general turmoil of thought. Xo great philosopher stands at the crossroad to direct your way. The current literature of today i\ in no sense helpful. There has been, recently, a lowering of business standards throughout the business world. Wealth, at any cost, has been dominant in the policies of individuals and corporations. If made as a general statement, that would hardly be true. It is, however, true that high ethical standards in business and business relationships have suffered tremendously during the years following the World War. Moral standards have changed or are being interpreted in terms of more liberal thought. "The old fogy" and the "youthful radical" are ages apart. There is no accepted middle ground. The social senses .ire dulled so that no standard of honesty or ce or common law or of internation.il good will seem to be worth righting for. The new generation will have many problems to solve, many adjustments and readjust- ments to make. A revision of social and relij tndards must follow, and some- what later international understanding and good will must come. You are now going out into this maelstrom of conflicting opinions, uncertain Standards, and international prejudice. Your opportunity is unusual. Your responsi- bility will, therefore, be very great. Because of this opportunity to serve, you arc to be congratulated. I am sure that in working for yourself you will be working for t rhers, and I am just as firmly convinced that in working for others you will be working for yourself. You may not always get what you wish for. but you are pretty sure to get what you work for. The extent of your reward will be measured tur ambition, sincerity, and perseverance, and by your respect for yourself. The world today lacks great leadership. It is woefully short of great teachers, preachers. Iaw-giver$, and great statesmen. from the ranks of the college graduates of 1931 may come a commanding personality capable of leading a puzzled >le mto highways of sanity and safety. There remains only one road to national security and world peace. The masses must be taught to think independently. They must be made to read and interpret the history of the ages in the light of present conditions. They must someday insist upon sane legislation beneficial to all classes. They will then obey willingly all laws imposed because of their real merit and justice; and respect for law and order will be restored. Someday we shall distinguish between the politician and the statesman. Then we shall be prepared to judge questions on merit rather than on prejudice. Here for the present is your responsibility and your opportunity. Your work will b< well done when you train for efficient employment and for independent thinking those for whom you are responsible, and additional rewards will come when you influence your community to higher standards of life and living.
